Construction Health and Safety Inspection and Audits
Clients and Contractors have a responsibility to ensure that their projects are undertaken safely. If they feel that their contractors are not performing as they should be or are unsure what their performance is like, we can assist them in completing their projects without incident or injury by reporting to them the good and the bad on their projects.
Evidencing Contractor Competence
Clients remain responsible for various actions as they have been deemed to employ competent contractors. The HSE Fee for Intervention scheme can cost them £129 per hour for any contraventions or breaches of legislation by them or their contractors that may be identified by a site visit by HSE.
A typical letter following a visit by the HSE can cost £1,000. This fee would include time on site, investigation of contraventions and issue of the letter. After that it could increase dependant on the client/contractor response.
Some contraventions may be taken to court and heavier fines and getting a reputation of being an unsafe client or contractor could follow as all cases are reported on the HSE website. Our service could help prevent this and be a cheaper outcome.
